Path-independent integrals in anisotropic media (EN)

Tsamasphyros, G (EN)

N/A (EN)

The concept proposed by the author for the construction of path-independent integrals (PI Is) in isotropic media is generalized for the construction of PIIs in anisotropic plane bodies weakened by a number of collinear cracks. The PIIs are classified into three classes satisfying well-defined restrictions. Using this classification about fifty general forms of PIIs are given, from which an infinity of new PI Is can be constructed. In many cases the form of the proposed integrals is simpler than the already known ones. This will facilitate their use in conjunction with finite element or experimental methods. A number of illustrative examples is also given. © 1989 Kluwer Academic Publishers. (EN)
